I had Non-Hodgkins lymphoma of the cervix area, treated by chemo and radiotherapy in 2017, also my recent related surgery.
I’m seven days into my recovery process after having a mini hysterectomy - the removal of both Fallopian tubes and ovaries, as well as a complicated cyst.
The surgery first part of the operation went well, but due to my radiotherapy tissue and scaring the surgeons had to deal with a tear - causing me to loose a lot of blood and had to be packed until bleeding was controlled, taking considerably longer in theatre.
This all brings back the emotions of my cancer treatments and the worrying that all entailed. I am scared of pulling my tummy and causing any further damage. I am reliving the thoughts of what if I had no woke up from surgery... my emotions are all over the place.
